0% platform costs, so let’s start!
Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) or spinal muscular atrophy is an inherited muscle disease usually occurs when children are very young. In SMA disease, muscle control is impaired. It is the most common genetic cause of infant death: about 600 children in Europe are born each year with SMA, a rare disease that affects muscle function, including breathing, swallowing and movement.

The most severe SMA type 1 affects about half of the affected children: the first signs are visible at birth or in the first few months after birth. Research has made great progress. In particular, the gene therapy drug Zolgensma has shown important results in SMA treatment. It is the most expensive drug in the world: the treatment costs more than 2 million euros.

Crowdfunding For SMA

Zolgensma is a one-time-only gene therapy treatment for children aged less than two years with spinal muscular atrophy (SMA). For a drug this expensive, there are sadly no healthcare insurance facilities available. This is why patients or families can start fundraising through crowdfunding platforms to cover their healthcare bills. 

Through crowdfunding, patients or families can register their cause and raise money from a global crowd. Of course, it is not that easy, and there are certain dos and don’t in crowdfunding. However, it is one of the best ways to gather funds for an expensive treatment like SMA.

Make sure to create a strong donor relationship by being thorough with your campaign and thank your donors for their kind gestures.
